The syslog (spool) is usually backed up / dumped by a job which has been set up by the systems programmers.

But then if you do not use the correct terminology to describe your request we can only guess at what you want when we apply the correct terminology to what you have written.

This part of your question needs some more explanation (for me)- 1. Do you want the JES data-sets, e.g: JESMSGLG etc.? 2. What level of z/OS are you running? In z/OS V1.9 you get the SDSF REXX interface. 3. Do you only want the sections (e.g.:JESYSMSG) or do you want the entire JOB STREAM that was created (Print and all)?

How would this "backup" be used?
corrected typo. . .

It is better to post what you are actually trying to accomplish rather than something you believe will help you get there. . .
